The Stack - The Plan

A couple of weeks ago, I showed you this picture of a stack of fabrics.
The strips are 4" x 11" and I think there are 200 or so of them.  So what did I do with them?

I asked Julie if she'd cut them into tumblers using her Accu-Cut gizmo. (I think that's what it's called.)

So I sent them to Tennessee, Julie cut them up, and they came back yesterday.  "I liked looking at the colors and fabrics you chose," she said when we talked on Sunday. "It's going to be a very pretty quilt."

I picked the colors and fabrics thinking of Spring. I sewed a few random pairs together to see what they might look like. It's going to be a table quilt.

So, OK, here they are:

Winter - "Picnic Table"

Spring will be the Tumblers (above)

Summer is the Blue Deco

Fall is the Fall House Top (away being quilted)

And last is the Christmas Random Plank.

All were made from fabrics from my stash.  (Yikes!)  I wanted them all to be scrappy, yet different. I don't think the Spring one is going to take long to make. I think once I get started it'll move right along.  You all know I love to watch Tennis on TV. Well, the French Open is going on right now, and I can sew and watch tennis at the same time. How good is that?

Yeah, I know I'm nuts.

Terrific idea to have the tumblers cut with the Accu-gizmo. (You can tell, can't you, that I don't have one either! LOL)

Happy to see the stacks stayed stacked in transit. (RE the gizmo - I have a Sizzix Big Shot Pro die cutter and with a thin adapter plate I can use any of the Accu-quilt GO dies)

Thanks for letting me play with those fun fabrics!

How fun. I should check my LQS to see if they have one of those gizmos to rent. I love your collection of table toppers.

Wow, you have the best table covers of any one I know! You dining room will always look fabulous! How sweet of Julie to cut all those fabrics for you - and how lucky for her to get to play with your fabrics! I think those tumblers will look very Spring-y!
